And SCOTUS will say, no thank you. Any federal law that takes rights away from women or minorities, they'll support. Any laws protecting women or minorities, SCOTUS will strike down in the name of states'rights.

SCOTUS, having become a political animal, will cower in the face of any big win.

#3 the last time Dems had the votes to do such a thing was early in President Obama's first term, back when the GQP believed in things like precedent and settled law. We know that two of the 50 Senators who caucus with the Dems won't change the filibuster to protect constitional rights or they would have done so for voting rights.

Democracy, at its finest, means electing a stable government because the majority of the people have voted for it. Unlike a Republican Party Presidency, of course.Trump would of course go along with whatever the American Taliban fundamentalists want.

Yeah. This may make for good politics, but the Supreme Court just relegated to the states the ability to ban abortion or not. So it would seem that anything Biden would do short of creating a constitutional amendment would be unconstitutional. Furthermore, it could be reversed by a future president. In fact, if you can arbitrarily demand that abortion be legal in all states, couldn't you do the same making it illegal?

That isn't what's being proposed. Biden is simply referring to a new law that a Democratic House and Senate (by nuking the filibuster) would pass and he would sign. The SCOTUS has no right nor power to find a legally-passed congressional law unconstitutional unless it violates the actual Constitution - which a law allowing abortion would not do.

Now, such a law could be rescinded should Republicans take over full control of government in the future, but it's highly doubtful they'd try that again if indeed the Dems do retain control of Congress this cycle and gain the 2 additional Senate seats needed to enact filibuster reform. Such a rebuke would certainly signal that the public's desire as it regards abortion, turning any banning efforts into another defacto third rail.

From which enumerated power does this statutory right to abortion emanate? The commerce clause? The general welfare clause? I think both are pretty shaky.

Don't get me wrong. I would support but I'm just not as optimistic as you that it would pass muster.

When I read Article I, Section VIII and try and square it with all of the powers our government has amassed that are dubious when in comes to enumerated powers....A federal abortion law probably would be seen as a political battle, not a legal battle.

#4, I declare"a missed opportunity! Republicans wanted to end abortion during Obama's first term too. Congress was busy bailing out banks.
